Patrick Leonard is nothing but determined. Having grown tired of his friends stuffing him in their weekly £10 game, Patrick studied hard, and by the time he’d graduated from the University of Sheffield, he was ready to go pro!
As Patrick says, “Poker is the kind of world you have to be completely immersed in if you want to be successful”. It took just 18 months for the Geordie to be ranked world number one on PocketFives.
To date, Patrick has accrued more than $2.5 million, almost half of which he won during a five-day Las Vegas heater in July 2017. The Englishman outlasted super-tough fields and took down three separate high-stakes tournaments, pocketing over $350K in each event! Despite this success, he spends most of him time playing online and has over $1 million worth of cashes in our flagship POWERFEST tournaments.
